There are about 23 Springfields in the USA, which state do the simpsons live in? I think it's on the east coast....I almost want to say New Hampshire or somewhere in the N.E. They've almost said it on a few episodes, but I don't think they ever have. Any clue???

The running joke on "The Simpsons" is the fact that they never identify which state Springfield is in. That way, they can change geographical features to suit the story (i.e. one episode they live near "Mt. Springfield", the next episode they live near the ocean).

In one episode, Marge is leaving her address information on the phone, and she says "713 Evergreen Terrace, Springfield, Oh hiya Maude!" (and Maude Flanders walks in).

Basically they live in Springfield, USA.

In one episode they showed Homers social security number, and the prefix on his SC number was the kind they give out in California. That gave me evidence to suggest they live in California, until one episode where they talk about West Springfield, which they say is 3 times the size of Texas! Which rules out the possibility of them living anywhere in the world. So I guess we will never know.

In the "Behind the Laughter" episode, they came out and said "This northern Kentucky family..." There happens to be a Springfield, KY, a Simpsonville, KY and a Shelbyville, KY. I don't buy it as admitting where they live though. I don't think there's any specific state where they live.

In the "Behind the Laughter" episode, they came out and said "This northern Kentucky family Yes, but when they replayed the episode, it said "this Northern Missouri family.." And then "Southern Missouri", so who knows? I would guess a State that does not really exsist.

In the episode where they go to Brazil the little boy they're looking for says that he was going to write but he didn't know what state they lived in. Then Lisa said it was a mystery but you can figure it out if you look at the clues.

Okay, I think I know where they might live, Northern California. Think about it, the social security number thing Beefmoney was talking about, it's near the mountains, near the ocean, similar to New England landscape, it's Northern California.

I think it is a fictional place and is not any of the Springfield.

Honestly, it's not Northern California. (Especially if you saw the whole "West Springfield" episode where they talked about how huge it was).

I repeat: The place they live is not a real state.

Remember the episode when Homer joins the Navy and goes on a submarine? They leave some west coast city.

Ok guys, I've analyzed this question for the past few years now, and I'm convinced the Simpsons live on the west coast, with a good probability of it being California. I'm not saying this is the state the writers had in mind, but all the clues and references they've used over the years, although vague, pretty much point to a west coast environment.

That's because the show is written and voiced in LA.  Big grin

California would work, except it's way to temperate for all the snow and cold temps the Simpsons get each winter.

Maybe the mid-atlantic states? It's fairly close drive to the ocean, to "Capital City" (New York), there are mountains within easy reach (Appalachians, a few others), and there is quite a concentration of nuclear facilities--Monty Burns could set up shop easily.

Cheers.

I am convinced the Simpsons live in Massachusetts. Why? Well remeber when George Bush moved in across the street? Well any way, Homer was upset and said "why can't he live in his home state?". Lisa then responded "this is his home state". I looked up which is his home state and it turns out to be Massachusetts.

Also, rememeber when they went to that 50s style restaurant that closed a day later? Any way, each table was the shape of a state, and the Simpsons sat at the table shapped like Massachusetts!

OK, then when Baldwin / Basinger moved in why did Homer ask why they didn't move to Bethesda? Springfield and Bethesda are both suburbs of DC. You cannot pinpoint one Springfield.

I always thought that they live in Springfield Illinois.

They dont live near DC because when Liza went to DC it took her nice few hours.

I think they live on the south coast, like in Texas, or somewhere. You see in one episode with the billion dollar cheque, they fly to cuba, so I think they live down there. and that would explain when they go to the ogdenville mall, all the arrid landscape they drive through.

And how often does it rain in springfield? Not alot!

I was gonna say Kentucky, because of the "Behind the Laughter" episode. And that still might work. However, I think Massachussetts is a good answer and because of Quimby. Missouri isn't it because of the episode where Lisa cheats and "Supernintendo" Chalmers tells her that Springfield elementary was moved from MO brick by brick.

But remember, they've got to be within driving distance of Las Vegas, and train-riding distance of Delaware.

And they have to be on the ocean. That eliminates Kentucky AND Missouri. Sorry, it can't be Texas. It snows in Springfield too often (and they live near mountains).
